In Safe Hands (15)
Cast. Sandrine Kimberlain, Gilles Lellouche, Elodie Bouchez.
Main language: French
With intro and Q&A on Tuesday 16th.
This is a delicate, poignant and heart-warming film about the intertwined fates of an abandoned baby in need of a home and a woman’s wish to become a mother. It is split between three standpoints: a twentysomething student surrendering her one-day-old son into state care; Alice, a 41-year-old divorcee desperate for a child of her own; and Jean and Karine, an interim carer and welfare officer who are in effect parents of the would-be parents.
The subject of adoption is rare in cinema and the screening on Tuesday 16th will be introduced by Kate Sparshatt, former director of PAC and adoptive parent, who will talk about her experiences of adoption, and an adoption social worker. There will also be a Q&A after the film.
